Navy detects unsafe levels of PFAS in Cutler wells

by Sarah Craighead Dedmon

Water testing on and around the Cutler Naval Station found unsafe levels of Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in 13 wells so far, including one on base.

Base well #503 tested negative for PFAS in 2016 but this year 121.6 ppt were detected, well above the U.S. Environmental Protection Agencies health advisory level of 70 ppt. Three other wells on base tested negative, or well below unsafe levels.
